Racing fans will likely be thrilled at the unprecedented access given in this documentary series. It really gets into the nitty-gritty behind building an effective driving team, as well as the conflicts between them. Le Mans: Racing Is Everything is a little slower going if you're not so jazzed on auto racing but still pretty cool learning about why a 24-hour race was conceived of in the first place (yes, this means they're racing at crazy speeds in the dark, on public roads!). It's also interesting seeing that as time marches on, technology is making a huge mark on Le Mans, from the new classes of cars included in the race (such as hybrids) to the inclusion of amateur drivers whose only previous racing experience was playing Gran Turismo on their PlayStations.
